Baiter Park Proposal

A new cafe could be built in Baiter Park under proposals being developed by Borough of Poole.

The council has submitted a planning application to improve and develop facilities at Baiter Park. 

The proposed development would feature a commercially-run cafe, which would provide freely accessible public toilets.

The project would require private investment and the council will seek a commercial partner to take the proposal forward in early 2018. 

The application for planning permission at Baiter Toilet Block follows an application for outline planning permission at Whitecliff Pavilion earlier in the year, which was approved. 

Cllr John Rampton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Open Spaces, Borough of Poole, said: “The proposal is a fantastic opportunity to enhance the facilities at Baiter Park, offering a café and publically accessible toilets, while ensuring we retain a wonderful open space for everyone to enjoy even more. We are continuing to seek third party organisations as partners in other locations as well.”

The planning application reference APP/17/01940/F can be viewed on the Planning Portal. Further designs for the toilet block will be developed with a commercial partner when the tender process has been completed.
